The top 10 performing S&P 500 stocks of the decade may surprise you with only a couple of household names on the list.
Netflix was the top performer on the list with returns of 3990% but was the only FAANG stock that made the list of top decade gainers.
The next stock on the list was MarketAxess (MKTX - Free Report) with 2650% returns this decade. This company revolutionized digital trading in the credit markets for institutional investors, creating a liquid and transparent exchange for fixed income assets.
Abiomed (ABMD - Free Report) and its artificial heart would have been the highest performing stock if it hadn’t broken down over 40% in the past year. Still, it was able to return investors 1840% since December 31st, 2009.
We had a few unsurprising semiconductors on the list as these companies made a name for themselves in their respective spaces. Broadcom (AVGO - Free Report) amassed 1670% gains over the last decade, and Nvidia (NVDA - Free Report) demonstrated an 1160% share price appreciation.
One of the most surprising stocks on this list to me was equipment rental company United Rentals (URI - Free Report) , which returned 1590% to investors.
